In this book, Anthony Esolen unapologetically defends the authentic social teachings of the Church as articulated by Pope Leo XIII — widely considered to be the father of Catholic Social Teaching. Esolen pulls back the curtain on those who falsely claim that Church social teaching implies the existence of a secular and bureaucratic welfare state, arguing instead that any authentic teaching must focus first on building and stabilizing the most fundamental unit of society — the family. Only then can a virtuous society be built that leads us toward our purpose on earth: sanctification.
